Statement regarding LockBit claims

Earlier this morning we became aware of tweets from LockBit, the cyber-criminal gang, claiming that they had compromised Darktrace’s internal security systems and had accessed our data. Our security teams have run a full review of our internal systems and can see no evidence of compromise. None of the LockBit social media posts link to any compromised Darktrace data. We will continue to monitor the situation extremely closely, but based on our current investigations we are confident that our systems remain secure and all customer data is fully protected.

Global Manufacturing Giant Signs Multi-Million-Dollar Deal with Darktrace Amidst Rise in Spear Phishing Attacks

Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security AI, today announced that a global manufacturer has signed a multi-million-dollar contract with Darktrace to ensure its email environment is protected by autonomous AI.

The company, which employs over 30,000 people and produces tires and other industrial products, with sites across multiple jurisdictions worldwide, has selected Antigena Email to defend against a consistently high volume of email threats targeting employees at every level of the business. Darktrace’s Antigena Email is a self-learning technology which stops targeted email campaigns and impersonation attacks that evade traditional email gateways. The technology works by learning the ‘pattern of life’ for every user in an organization. By understanding the human behind the email, rather than relying on historic data from known threats, Antigena Email can precisely identify and stop never-before-seen malicious email activity – before it ever reaches the user.

Email remains the most common entry point for cyber-attackers as adversaries use methods such as advanced phishing attempts, account takeovers and domain spoofing. A single phishing email can lead to mass compromise and traditional email gateways are no longer equipped to deal with the sophisticated attacks aimed at modern organizations every day.

“We are pleased to be protecting this global manufacturer, which is not only keeping the wheels turning on our streets but also providing vital components which so much of our day-to-day infrastructure relies on to function,” Poppy Gustafsson OBE, CEO at Darktrace, said. “Today attackers are exploiting the appetite to access information quickly and so organizations must ensure they have sophisticated, AI-powered technology to protect the inbox.”
